Welcome back, for the second half of 2006. I hope that the summer was enjoyable for you and your family, now back to organization business. I am pleased to report that the new scholarship presentation format seemed to work well, as nine of the ten winners were able to attend our June meeting. Chairman Mike Villa die a great job organizing the whole program, so I would like to acknowledge him for his efforts. Thanks Mike.
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce to the membership James G. Anderson, Pastor of the Faith Evangelical Lutheran Church as our newest organizational Chaplain. Welcome aboard.
The August boat ride was probably the best ever, the weather was great, the food was plentiful and delicious, and the band Usual Suspects, had the crowd up dancing and singing all night. Rich and his workers did a fantastic job, hope we see you next year.
I would like to personally thank Nelson Doanes, and the National Police Support Network, for honoring Rich Rottkamp and myself at their June Dinner/Dance, it was truly an honor and deeply appreciated.
Remember the current board’s term of office expires at the end of December. So if you’re interested in possibly becoming a board member, contact one of the nominating committee members; Rich Rottkamp, Bob Forrester, Frank Lawlor Joe Murray or Joe Wolff prior to the September 14th meeting.
